Protesters Burn US Flag Outside Trump Hotel

In response to President-elect Donald Trump’s suggestion that anyone burning the United States flag should face consequences, protesters have brazenly burned a U.S. flag right outside one of Trump’s properties.

Activists, including members of the “Revolutionary Communist Party,” gathered outside the Trump International Hotel in New York City Tuesday and held a flag-burning.

Here’s why they claim they did it:

And now they’ve started a “flag-burning challenge.”

Reuters has clarified that the seven members of the Revolutionary Communist Party who participated in the flag burning Tuesday night are a separate group not affiliated with the Communist Party of the United States.
